5. The Beauty Myth – Naomi Wolf

First off you’ll never believe that this book was written around 20 years ago. 
'The Beauty Myth,' by Naomi Wolf talks about the growing social demands of women and society to look a certain way and conform at all costs. 
Our favourite quote? “To live in a culture in which women are routinely naked where men aren't is to learn inequality in little ways all day long.”

(The No More Page 3 campaign springs to mind!)
For girls trying to understand what is happening to how they are represented and picked apart in modern culture, reading Wolf is a must.
